Tool Changer

April 22, 2024

ATI Industrial Automation has introduced the MC-50 manual tool changer for robotic tooling. With an ergonomic lever operation, the patent-pending MC-50 enables quick changes of robotic end-of-arm tooling by hand. This compact tool changer is designed for applications on collaborative robots that support payloads up to 25 kg as well as small industrial robots supporting payloads up to 10 kg. Featuring an ISO 50 mm mounting interface, the low-profile MC-50 mounts directly to most cobots, and integrates with many common cobot marketplace grippers and end-effectors. The MC-50 also includes a safety latch button on the lever to provide secondary locking for increased safety and prevention of involuntary uncoupling. A variety of electrical and pneumatic utilities for downstream end-effectors are supported through four M5 integrated pneumatic pass-through ports and a mounting flat for optional ATI utility modules.
